Pet Valu Hosts Thanks for Giving Campaign

Pet Valu Pet Store

Pet Valu Pet Store

Pet Valu is holding a Thanks for Giving collection drive throughout the month of November to raise awareness of and collect food and supplies for local shelters and rescues that serve homeless animals in need.

Customers are encouraged to make monetary donations or drop off food and unused supplies at their local Pet Valu. With stores across the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Midwest, Pet Valu customers raised $138,000 during this campaign last year.

Pet Valu has stores throughout Connecticut, including in Bristol, Hartford, Avon and Newington.

The holiday season is a very important time to ensure rescues are stocked up on supplies and food as they often see a rise in the number of pets they serve when pets are gifted to individuals unable to care for them.

Customers are encouraged to make monetary donations in store and to drop off food and unused supplies for pets at their local Pet Valu stores. Customers will also be able to feed a homeless dog or cat for a week by purchasing a food care package for $5.

“It’s important to not forget about the vulnerable homeless cats and dogs living in shelters as we buy gifts for everyone else during the holiday season,” said Joe Dent, vice president and U.S. general manager for Pet Valu. “We’re looking forward to our customers stepping up and donating these much-needed supplies to the animals that need them most.”

Each Pet Valu store will identify a local shelter or rescue to be the recipient of the collection, ensuring customer donations stay in their respective communities. For more information, please visit www.us.petvalu.com.
